Today finds me nursing a cold and feeling generally less than spectacular. Imagine my surprise when the Wife came in the bedroom, laptop in hand, and showed me this. I was interviewed by the article’s author, Eric Sofge, a couple of months ago. He said he was writing an interesting article on the 10 most cited vehicles and he’d read my blog and was curious about my opinion. I was flattered to be asked and happy to help.
Apparently, the article ran today because my hits went through the damn roof! My virtual inbox is virtually overflowing with comments, questions, and general well wishes. I wanted to take the time to thank Eric for including me in his article and also to thank you all for the emails and comments…most of you, that is.
Which leads me to my next point. The first thing you should know about this blog is I moderate comments. Consequently, you folks that are predisposed to leave anonymously hateful comments because that one cop was an asshole to you that one time? Feel free to piss right off. I won’t be giving you the satisfaction of a response. I don’t have time for your anonymous bullshit. As a matter of fact, since you obviously have a less-than-positive view of me already, for every comment along these veins, I shall go out and write five more tickets in your honor.
For the rest of you lot, rest assured, I’m more than happy to read, post, and respond to as many comments as I can. I’ve no problem with honest questions and/or criticisms…if you can make me laugh, all the better. As a new reader, please understand a large majority of what I write is intended with a certain sense of humour. It may very well not be your sense of humour, but that’s part of what makes the world go round. I prefer the comic stylings of a Craig Shoemaker or a Bob Marley to a Doug Stanhope or a Steven Wright. Different strokes.
Feel free to go back to the beginning to get a better idea of who I am and where I’m coming from. Before you make any snap judgments about my ilk or me specifically, spend some time reading a bit more. You may just find I’m not what you assume at first sight. The moniker doesn’t always define the man. You’ll also notice I’ve a few blogs I link to along the right portion of the blog. There’s some good stuff in there from both the Cop world, the Dispatch universe and the Medic realm.
Thanks very much for taking the time to read my schlock. I hope you get something out of it and find some much needed laughter in this increasingly downer world.
On a personal note, the Wife and I are expecting a second Kid any day now, so updates may very well be sporadic for a bit. I’ve worked about 120 hours of OT in the last two months, so I’ve got a bunch of stories primed and ready.
